Customer Reviews & Photos
good looking trees...planted after delivery and used organic fertilizer. weather unusally mild here in new jersey and trees doing very well.
Ordered 2 Holly trees and a Crape Myrtle. Shipped out the next day and arrived within 2 days. Packed beautifully. They are all planted and doing well. The holly trees look really nice. The Crape will look good next spring.
Ordered seven and all arrived in excellent condition — green, healthy, well-shaped, and good size.
Great! Product arrived quickly and in great condition. Just as described and in the ground growing.
The hollies I purchased from FGT arrived in good shape. As my experience has taught me, they were transferred to 15gallon pots with good soil to grow during the heat of the summer. These will surely thrive once planted in their permanent locations in winter. Thank you!
Planting & Care
1. Planting: When planting your Red Holly, find a site that offers some shade, even though they can tolerate full sun (5 to 8 hours of sunlight per day is ideal). Select a site with moist, well-draining soil, and dig the hole a little shallower than the root ball and three times the width of the root ball. Loosen the soil in and around the hole so the roots can easily break through.
Back fill the hole, apply water to settle the soil and remove the air pockets. Mulching around the Holly can be beneficial in retaining soil moisture while also keeping competitive growth such as grass and weeds at bay.
2. Watering: Water yourRed Holly as needed to keep the soil lightly moist. However, don’t allow the soil to get over saturated - simply check the soil about 3 inches down for dryness, and water if the area is dry.
3. Fertilizing: The Holly generally doesn’t require any supplemental fertilization. However, if the soil or growth is poor, feed the plant in spring and fall using a fertilizer specifically formulated for evergreen and other acid loving plants.
4. Pruning: Pruning is only required if you wish to keep the holly at a certain shape or size. Shape your Holly in late winter or early spring before growth resumes.
